You don't have to be a man to be a cowboy. Unless you are talking about not having arms. Arms are important as are legs but they don't need to do alot.

There's nothing like the Rockies in the springtime... Nothing like the freedom in the air... And there ain't nothing better than draggin calves to the fire and there's nothing like the smell of burning hair. -Brenn Hill

I love this website (what started as a blog by a ranchers' wife a few years ago).

Confessions of a Pioneer Woman - ThePioneerWoman.com

They still use horses, and brand and castrate cattle, and he has his kids right there along side him learning and doing.

The little girl in this last one is more of a cowboy than a lot of folks out there that wanna be . And look, she isn't even wearing a hat .

My wife reads that blog regularly. Pioneer woman is the kind of woman that every cowboy needs. She is a good cook, will help when needed but doesn't get in the way and raises good kids to help with the ranch. It also helps if she authors a New York Times best seller and has a very popular and hence monetarily lucrative website.

Yeah, no complaining to the wife about all that time she's wasting blogging when the money starts rolling in .

I like to consider me and my family "cowboys" LOL. We all 3 ride, train, rope, and work cattle (though we do use a nordfork instead of having someone sit on the calves most the time, it is much easier when there is only 2 or 3 people present and 1 is roping). That's me on the horse in the background.


Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

I am faithful to PDub too, and have to throw in this little known fact: did you know her blog ads generate over $1M a year TAKE HOME?!?!?! That's whats left for her after the ad company she signed with takes her revenue!

Now, attention all ranchers: marry me, I can write, I can take pictures, I can even make a good pot roast. Its the recipe for success!

Sorry Roy Rogers and Gene Autry... Most real cowboys back in the day and even now arent prettily coiffed, white, and sing well. Most were hispanic or black and very rough and hardy and smoked so much tobacco that they had a voice as soft as gravel.

If you buy your boots to wear only with a cute dress or when you go to a country music concert, you are not a cowboy... thanks Tailor Swift. This latest fashion trend just plain bothers me for some reason, Imo it is as odd as when everyone thought horseback riders wore lion tamer pants.

If the closest you ever get to a real cow is either running a straight line in a rodeo arena or on a Whopper or sitting on your leather and nailhead studded sofa complete with concho detail, you are not a cowboy.

Urban Cowboy...psh.
